Hi everyone,

I've been lurking here for a while now and decided to post in this thread.
I started taking piano lessons at the age of 52 in october 2017, and I love it😍.

I finished Alfred 's Basic Adult Piano Course Book1 (French Edition) in July 2018(except for Amazing Grace) and accomplished a few supplemental pieces in the last few months. Since October this year we restarted working songs in the Alfred' s Basic Adult book 2, but not in the order of the book. I am trusting my teacher to pick the right songs for me. Til now I have learned so far " Introduction and dance, Polvetsian dance, Symphonie no 6, Fascination".
I am currently working on"Village dance" from Alfred book2, Prelude 1 in C Major from Bach(almost finished) and an easy version of "Mad world".

I am very excited to join this forum.

Bought it just about the time I quit playing for a year, started backup and find the book very useful. Emedia Intermediate piano also being a great help. So many options now.

Hi all, another long-time lurker here, got back into playing recently after finally acquiring a weighted dp (Casio CDP-230). I'm currently working on the Chopin op. 10 no. 3 theme (at an excruciatingly slow tempo), as well as Burgmuller etudes 1 and 2 and the Minuet in G from Anna Magdalena Bach's notebook. I've been messing around in Alfred's AIO 2 sporadically for quite a while but I'm determined to get through it this time, if only for the satisfaction of being done with it. No teacher right now but I'm planning on getting one in the new year. I've had lessons in classical guitar in the past and find it really keeps me motivated and progressing, also I'm sure a good teacher would have a thing or two to say about my self-taught technique.

Hi all!

I've just finished book 1 and I'm starting book 2.

I'm 50 years old.

My objective is to play many pieces for my pleasure, reading. I don't care if I play them slowly. I'll end up memorizing parts of the pieces, because of repeating them on practice, but I won't force memorizing.

Together with book 2, I've started a classical piece, because it is more my taste (a Bach piece).

Playing the piano is learning to create, playfully and deeply seriously, our own music in the world.

This isn’t really an active thread, but I’ll update here anyway. I’m working on Hungarian Rhapsody and Morning Has Broken. The former is ok now, except around measure 23. I can play it most of the time if I don’t care about how it sounds. I can’t yet get a good staccato sound and not trip in that spot. My teacher was trying to help me play a more crisp, bouncy finger staccato. The variants on Morning has Broken are fun, especially the 16th notes.

My husband heard Mozart’s “Variations on a Theme” by chance one day and decided that I could and should learn to play it. I enjoy a challenge, so I’ve got the theme down pretty nicely and am making good progress on Variant I. Variant V is up next. I listened to each on repeat for 10-15 minutes each, until I went crazy, trying to get the sound into my head so I would know what I was trying to play, with some success. I also picked out a couple popular pieces from some books she had. “Favorite Things” from Sound of Music is next.

I want to be able to play the duet parts in my son’s first primer book for him. They’re pretty challenging, especially the unfamiliar key signatures.

Hello all! I was wondering if this thread still existed. I finally finished book one in January and I am currently working on "Light and Blue".

A lack of talent does not stop you from learning piano. It just takes longer and you have to work harder.

This thread is only more active than its successor, possibly because fewer people make it out of Book 1 and into Book 2, and even fewer into 3. Both you and Domestic Engineer should be proud! thumb It suggest both of you will also make it into Book 3 eventually! Go go go smile
